Sen. Feingold Blames Obama for Loss of Public Option

Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wisc.) joined Howard Dean and many others on the left when he expressed his disappointment over the Obama Administration's failure to lead in health care, or failure put up even a minimal fight for the public option.

Senator Feingold:

Unfortunately, the lack of support from the administration made keeping the public option in the bill an uphill struggle. Removing the public option from the Senate bill is the wrong move, and eliminates $25 billion in savings. I will be urging members of the House and Senate who draft the final bill to make sure this essential provision is included.
